Shibori and denim custom patio cushions for Venice, CA home.
Hand dyed and handmade in Altadena, CA.
This collection is made from repurposed and found materials purchased locally in Los Angeles at Flea Markets. There is no telling what you can find. It is a great place to source materials. There are leather scraps, fabric scraps, old thread, things you can take apart and reuse. There is always a feeling of possibility in something discarded, items have a history that you can rewrite. I love the idea of breathing new life into something that was sitting in someone’s attic.
This collection is based on life outdoors, and inspired by imagery found on a cross country road trip. The symbols were found anywhere from campsites to road signs to local western towns. Specifically, these bag represents my travels from Brooklyn, New York to Los Angeles, California. These bag has a lot of soul and history and it is ready for the next leg of the adventure.
